Bridport...A Town Run By Women

Bridport Sign

12:03am 26th May 2013

Never mind the Spice Girls...Girl power is alive and well at Bridport Town Council.

Men are just not getting a look in on the town council, with Mayor Maggie Ray, Deputy Sandra Brown, and  council leader Sarah Williams.

Janis Brown is the mayor's chaplain and Jane Silver-Corren is the town crier.

The Mayor's husband, councillor Martin Ray does at least have the title 'Consort'.

The mayor says there is a larger number of women on the town council than previously, and positions were selected in terms of ability rather than any gender bias.
